Brooklyn, NY – “Negotiating away the death penalty with terrorists at Guantanamo Bay would be a travesty of justice against the more than 3,000 victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, their surviving family members, and every servicemember who has risked his or her life over the past 21 years to protect this nation from further attacks.
“Self-proclaimed 9/11 architect Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his terrorist confederates, Ramzi Binalshibh, Mustafa Ahmed al-Hawsawi, Walid bin Attash and Ammar al-Baluchi, should have been tried in military court years ago for their murderous attacks against U.S. citizens.
“Mohammed and his partners plotted for months to kill as many innocent Americans as possible on that bright September morning and would have killed hundreds or thousands more in Washington, D.C. had brave passengers not overtaken one of the hijacked aircraft over Pennsylvania. Any efforts to soften the penalties they pay for their actions are unacceptable. Time will never lessen the evil these men did.”
